Propellerhead Software has had considerable success on iOS primarily with its Figure music creation app, which was hailed by Apple as its App of the Year in 2012. Now, the developer is out with another music creation app in the form of Take Creative Vocal Recorder.
Boasting the same combination of simplicity and innovation found in Figure, Take is an iOS app that lets musicians, whether professionals or budding ones, record their musical ideas on the go:
Take is a creative recorder for musicians. It’s got the same drop-dead simplicity you’ve come to expect with your voice memos, with features custom-tailored to vocalists’ needs—like the ability to record harmonies along with your voice, blend in effects to sweeten the sound and sing along to an array of beats and rhythms. Take will soon become your go-to sketchpad for musical ideas.
With Take, you can sing, hum, rap, strum, beatbox, riff, overdub, or do whatever you like with any musical idea you want to record. The app comes equipped with built-in clicks, loops and beats to accompany your recording. It also lets you share your musical masterpieces via email, Facebook or Twitter.
Check out Take in action in the promo video below, which features Lyrical God and JTruth recording “Bounce to My Pain” using the app:If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here.
As demoed in the video, Take is best used with headphones, enabling you to properly hear your backing tracks. Note, though, that headphones without integrated microphones are recommended for use with Take, since the app is optimized with processing algorithms and effects for the built-in microphone on an iOS device.
